County of Imperial Launches Contest to Create a County Slogan/Hashtag

Imperial County has a rich agricultural heritage, an extensive amount of renewable resources, a wide-range of cultural and outdoor activities with hundreds of points of interest and a lively population with frequent family-oriented community events. In a continued effort to encourage civic engagement, while promoting the assets and resources that Imperial County has to offer, the County of Imperial is holding an Imperial County Slogan/#Hashtag Contest.

This is an opportunity to create a slogan and accompanying hashtag that would epitomize the County's vision of: building opportunity by leading California's renewable energy future while remaining true to our rich agricultural heritage. The contest is open to all residents of the county who meet the eligibility requirements and adhere to the contest rules listed below.


Only one entry of both a slogan and accompanying hashtag per person.

Slogans must be less than ten words and hashtags must be less than 15 characters, excluding the # symbol.
All entries will become the property of the County of Imperial.
Finalists will be selected by a panel of judges appointed by the Board of Supervisors. The grand prize winner(s) will be determined by the Board of Supervisors.

All entries must be submitted to the Imperial County Clerk of the Board, 940 West Main Street, Suite 209, El Centro, CA 92243. Phone: (442) 265-1020.
